A vote to determine whether the Major League Baseball Players Association will accept a league proposal to play 60 regular games has been delayed again.  This came as Commissioner Rob Manfred made late tweaks to the offer, sources told ESPN's Jesse Rogers.

Manfred sent a letter to MLBPA executive director Tony Clark offering to cancel expanded playoffs and the universal designated hitter for 2021 if a full season isn't played in 2020, sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan.

On Saturday, the union's executive board met and the players planned to delay voting on the proposal until they collected data on coronavirus testing after several outbreaks at training facilities and in major league cities, sources told ESPN.

By Sunday evening it was revealed that some 40 MLB players and staff tested positive for COVID-19 in the past week.

The season is now expected to begin July 26, the earliest.

“I really believe we are fighting over an impossibility on games,’’ Manfred said to Clark in his e-mail obtained by USA TODAY Sports. “The earliest we will be ready for players to report is a week from Monday [June 29] given the need to relocate teams from Florida. That leaves 66 days to play 60 games. Realistically, that is the outside of the envelope now.’’
